Just like a summer hit on radio, we like to have a light, cheerful slot for the sunny season that we can play on a hot day while sipping a cold drink at the pool. Quickspin will give us just that with their Prime Zone slot. Medium variance, adequate win potential, picture postcard background and chirpy soundtrack, all together it won’t burn a big hole into our pockets or for that matter overfill them but will keep us well entertained throughout a slotting session.
Multiplier wilds and a free spins round with a selectable Prime Zone where different multipliers and three wilds that are randomly placed one three consecutive reels on every free spin will provide most of the excitement and wins of up to 2,685 times your bet.
Prime Zone is a video slot with five reels, three rows and 10 fixed pay lines. Wins are paid for three to five matching symbols on a line from left to right only. Your retro-reel adventure on desktop or mobile will cost you 0.10 to 100 credits per spin. The game has medium volatility and an RTP of 96.28%.
A postcard holiday scene at sunset brings a light atmosphere to the game window in retro 80s style. Neon lights flashing and traditional slot pay symbols complete the design. A catchy soundtrack will whisk you off to your next holiday destination.
The pay symbols start at the low end with the card suits – clubs, hearts, spades and diamonds – awarding wins from 5x to 10x your bet for a single five of a kind. They are followed by bells, diamonds as well as blue and red 7s. Hit five on a line to win 20x to 50x your stake.
The wild symbol is an simple icon with the word itself, paying 100x your bet for a 5OAK and substituting for all regular symbols, while the scatters are a red icon with the word “bonus”.
Multiplier wilds are key to scoring big and mega wins on this slot. They can appear anywhere on the reels and multiply a win by up to x5. If two or more multiplier wilds are part of a winning combo, then a win multiplier is awarded based on the number of wilds in the combo. For example, a win with four wilds is multiplied by x4.
Hit three scatters anywhere on the centre reels in on spin to trigger seven free spins, which cannot be retriggered. You will now be led to the Bonus Picker screen where you have to choose between four options for your free spins, based on what volatility you prefer.
The Prime Zone is activated on every free spin, covering the selected or random three consecutive reels, plus three wilds are placed on random positions within the Prime Zone reels. It worth noting that all wins are multiplied irrespective if they contain a wild. Any wilds in a combo will add their multiplier on top, leading to a maximum win multiplier of x20. A five of a kind wilds symbol would pay then 2,000x your stake.
Well, after some high-volatility roller coasters such as Hall of the Mountain King or Ticket to the Stars, Quickspin seem to have taken a breather and designed a feel good retro game with a sunny theme, light soundtrack, medium volatility and basic win potential that can actually lead quite regularly to well-sized wins. The feature hits frequent enough to avoid boredom while the soundtrack entertains you in between. Enjoy summer.
